"Great shot, kid. That was one in a million."
     –Han Solo, Star Wars: A New Hope

The Star Wars galaxy is full of heated conflict and dramatic turns of events. Rebels and Imperials battle on countless planets while their fleets clash amid the stars. Jedi face Sith in tense lightsaber duels. Resistance fighters conduct bombing raids on First Order bases. Heroes rise from humble origins to alter the fate of the galaxy.

This May 2nd – 6th, you'll find these conflicts—and more—exploding onto the tables of the 2018 May World Championships!

Hosted at the Fantasy Flight Games Center in Roseville, MN, the 2018 May World Championships feature the world's top players for five of our Star Wars games:

Attend these five days of top-tier Star Wars gaming, and you'll find fast-paced duels of dice and cards. You'll find X-wings screaming into action against TIE fighters. Capital ships bombard each other amidst swarms of fighters and bombers. Teams of Rebels, Imperials, and mercenaries race through narrow corridors and peek around corners.

You'll witness dramatic turns of fortune, see far-reaching plans come together at the last possible moment, learn how the Force flows through all things… and find yourself in contention for a wide array of exclusive prizes!
